1 from 'A Quiet Place' at the box office, but just barely

A Quiet Place

SGAnalysts wonder if it can cross $100 million in the US alone this weekend

Another weekend, another movie starring The Rock conquering the box office.

Despite the movie sporting a 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and last weekend's box office hit, "A Quiet Place", looking to have a strong second weekend in theaters, the Johnson brand went into overdrive leading to "Rampage" winning the weekend at the box office with an estimated $34.5 million, according to boxofficepro. The over-the-top action movie pulled in $34.5 million for its opening weekend to sit in the No. 1 spot in the USA and Canada. Heading into the weekend, tracking showed Rampage launching to $35 million-$40 million.

Internationally, "Rampage" earned $114.1 million in 61 territories. That's an impressive number for a movie that reportedly cost about $3.5 million to make and was shredded by critics.

Johnson in a plot perhaps better seen than described: He plays a primatologist who befriends an albino gorilla who grows to enormous size after a rogue experiment and who then teams with Johnson to stop invading monsters.

Lois Riess of Blooming Prairie, Minnesota, has been billed in the death of Pamela Hutchinson, 5-9, of Bradenton, Florida. Upon arrival, police say the suspect, a 33-year-old Brandon man, was fleeing out of the rear door of the residence.

A big reason for that is because of the movie's star, Dwayne Johnson, who is one of the few actors in today's Hollywood who bring audiences to the theaters. We may never know, but the UAE haul helped the movie towards a $36.7M global total, which included a top spot at the Chinese box office, where the film took $15.7M on Friday night alone.

Directed by John Krasinski, who also stars alongside wife Emily Blunt, A Quiet Place follows a family living in silence in order to hide from creatures that hunt their prey by sound.
